Description
Here we offer you a special Heuer Autavia 1163 GMT. This is the first execution (MK1) of the automatic Autavia GMT with all 24 numbers on the GMT bezel. Among the Vintage Heuer Autavia GMT watches, this early version is the rarest one.

Both the blue and red sides of the rotating bezel are faded, which makes this watch look really vintage. The black, matte dial is in gorgeous condition without any spots. The beige patina of the sub-dials reflects the aging process and makes this watch very lively. The tritium lume in hour markers and hands is original and intact. The pillow-shaped stainless steel case is in a condition vintage collectors are looking for: never polished with natural signs of wear.

Another rare feature of this watch is the movement 11i GMT. It is the improved Heuer automatic caliber 11 with an additional GMT module. This was rebuilt a short time later to caliber 14. The watches with these early movement have a small triangle hallmark under the lug (see pictures). All functions have been checked and run smoothly.

This Heuer Autavia 1163 GMT is a stunning and special vintage watch you don't see often. For Heuer collectors, this watch is an absolute highlight.
